Re: Creative challenge 001: Pamela in BW

Thanks, Pavel.

My vexelization was made the easy way (i.e. I don't draw very well.)

First I made a full glamour retouch in B&W (attached). I made the vignette with 4 passes of angled perpendicular gradient fills.

I was ready to call it a day, but decided to experiment with Artistic Poster Edges followed by Artistic Cutout. Sorry, I don't recall the settings I used in those plugins. Lastly, I ran a moderate high pass sharpen. It was more of an accidental result than a purposed one.

I did this with PhotoImpact, but should easily translate to any other editor.

BTW, I love your sketch too and would also like to learn how you did that.

Re: Creative challenge 001: Pamela in BW

Lonnie, thank you for walk through.

I did a B&W sketch in PS (attached) - a combination of layers made with
1. desaturate/duplicate/invers/color dodge/gaussian blur
2. desaturate/duplicate/invers/color dodge/mimimize
3. high pass/torn edges
4. original B&W photo
5. grey bg

merged with layer masks

merged layers, opened in Painter, used chulk brushes (mostly tapered artst chulk) on a clone.

Moved back to PS, charpened and added background

Hope that answers your question. If need addtionoal details please let me know.

Re: Creative challenge 001: Pamela in BW

A lot of you have gotten to this long before I did. Been busy and haven't been keeping up with challenges. Must though to keep in practice. Being new at this I didn't know whether to usr B&W mode or just to desaturate the color when done. So anyway it went liike this -- First I smudged and got her all glamorized. Got rid of loose hair ends and wisps. Created a background tha would hold after going B&W. Then I "desaturated". Then added some lighting. I did this in about 30 minutes so a lot of loose ends but it turned out fare I think.

Thanks for all of you that help us out here and share with us technique etc. We all can learn from each other.
